The World

The World

In the centre of the World is a woman who is rejoicing of her journey – she has found a way to work online and travel the world at the same time.  She is excited by the new beginnings it promises.  The woman has one leg crossed over the other, just like the Hanged Man.  She is, in a sense, his opposite.  As the Hanged Man looks infinitely inward, the woman in the World card is able to look infinitely outward.  She is using the computer with both hands, representative of evolution and balance with respect to her digital life.  She is surrounding by the green logo from Trip Advisor, a symbol of success, victory, achievement and accomplishment.  The red and white Adobe Creative Cloud logo forms an infinity type symbol, representing the infinite rewards of positive effort in improving both ourselves and those around us with creativity.

The logos in each of the four corners of the World card are the same logos that appear on the Wheel of Fortune. Interestingly, the World card is very much associated with the Wheel of Fortune, reflecting the cyclical progression of time and the human experience. The four logos (Windows, Tor, Linux and Apple) represent the four fixed modes of accessing the Internet.  Windows symbolizes conformity and safety, Apple simplicity and calm, Linux technicalities and functionality and Tor symbolizes adventures and darkness.  And all are within the dancer’s sight and power.
